Why Smart Social Marketers Think Mobile First | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
janlgordon's insight:

This article is from mobilemarketingwatch and has some very interesting findings that you may or may not be aware of.


What is the true value of social media marketing? Ask anyone who knows what they’re doing and how to make the most of today’s leading social channels, and you’re bound to get an optimistic earful.


Unified Social has put together this infographic and here are a few things that caught my attention:


Mobile isn't coming soon, it's already here!


Smart social marketers are targeting the mobile social audience because:


The Social Mobile audience shares twice as often


78% of US Facebook users access it via mobile at least one a month


60% of Twitter users access it via mobile at least once a month


Facebook fan pages from mobile devices are 39% more engaging


Pinterest content is shared 3 times more often on mobile then on desktops


Mobile users are 66% more likely to retweet


Here are a few tips for mobile social marketing:


1. Check to make sure your content looks good in mobile feeds before posting it.


2. Make sure your pinned posts are relevant to mobile users

Curation on the Go! - Topsy Launches Realtime Search Engine For Mobile Devices

Curation on the Go! - Topsy Launches Realtime Search Engine For Mobile Devices | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

Robin Wauters just posted this in Techcrunch a few hours ago 12/13/11


Topsy Labs is releasing a social, realtime search engine for mobile devices today, enabling users to discover relevant chatter about any topic based on data from Twitter and Google+.


**Also useful: search queries can be automatically saved so users can revisit specific results at any time, and any piece of social content can be referenced historically for any topic, term or link.


**Think about how amazing this will be for curators - having timely information at your fingertips wherever you are and readers who are consuming or bookmarking content that's meaningful to them in real-time so that nothing slips through the cracks.


What caught my attention:


**Topsy cites a Performics study that says 32 percent of people search more on mobile phones than they do on computers, and that 75 percent of people think that mobile search makes their life easier.

Millennials Driving Social Media Power Shift: The Economic Impact

Millennials Driving Social Media Power Shift: The Economic Impact | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

Stephen Monaco wrote this insightful post for Spiral 16 about the Millennials -


He says:


"It’s imperative for media companies, marketing firms, content producers, advertisers, and brand managers alike to collect, filter and analyze “big data” to gain insightful knowledge to develop an understanding of Millennials’ sentiments, perceptions, and behavior.


Here's what caught my attention:


Transfer of Power


**YouTube was founded as an Internet channel in 2005 and acquired by Google in November 2006, so the genie has been out of the bottle for years now.


**Giant media companies are truly in danger that millennials may completely ignore their traditional program offerings in favor of more relevant content created by other millennials, or by innovative new companies who are more in tune with what this demographic finds interesting.


**Young Americans in high school and college are bringing about a transfer of power, shifting control within the industry of mass media by creating their own content.

Albert McVities's curator insight, May 8, 2013 8:43 PM

This topic is extremely relevant to in how we market our product to our consumers today. Media and marketing have only been a great impact on the company's income. This article gives some of the facts that how media have been changed and used in recent years. "The millennial generation has been engrossed by the inundation of media and are products of an environment where media companies create and reinforce the content it deems best for the consumers of media."


 

Flying_Ray's comment, May 9, 2013 6:07 AM
This article was really interesting. As consumers continue to increase in their use of secondary screens and dual screen viewing, it will become more and more important for marketers to develop communication strategies that take advantage of these new touch points, while also having a message that is personally relevant to the individual. As it says in the article, for many companies this will mean the use of big data to indentify insights that can be used to enhance their brand equity with their individual customers.
Gerry O'Beirne Dunn's comment, May 9, 2013 11:53 PM
I like how businesses are tailoring their messages to individuals now rather than trying to approach an entire target audience as one group of like-minded people. It's interesting to note how young social media is in terms of when it was established, and how drastically it's changed marketing methods since it's inception. As things continue to change and improve, it will be important to familiarize ourselves with newer technologies and incorporate them into our marketing channels.

Majority of Millennials Value Social Media Over a Steady Paycheck

Majority of Millennials Value Social Media Over a Steady Paycheck | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

For her blog, Marketing Pilgrim, Cynthia Boris brings us some eye-opening findings from Part Two of the 2011 Cisco Connected World Technology Report.


This part of the report is based upon interviews with 100 young professionals in their 20s, from each of 14 countries.  (Part one was based upon the same sample size but using college students).


The results are at the same time somewhat unsurprising yet very eye-opening.


Here are a few of the findings:


***56% of college students said that if they encountered a company that banned access to social media, they would either not accept a job offer or would join and find a way to circumvent corporate policy.


***40% of college students and 45% of young employees said they would accept a lower-paying job that had more flexibility with regard to device choice, social media access, and mobility than a higher-paying job with less flexibility


***27% of college students said that staying on Facebook was more important than partying, dating, listening to music or hanging out with friends.


(Cynthia's son suggests that these numbers are two low and that the real diehards were too busy on Facebook to respond!)


***66% of students and 58% of employees cite a mobile device (laptop, smartphone, tablet) as “the most important technology in their lives.


The takeaways here from a marketing perspective are:


***GenYers are always on. 


***The line between work and leisure hours are being erased.


***"Young professionals now choose their lunch location based on the instant coupon that shows up on their phone at 11:00 am. They’re shopping for holiday gifts while sitting in a meeting and they’re making weekend getaway plans in the middle of the week."


Food for thought for all of us in business or embarking upon new ventures.

The Growth of Social Media on Mobiles

The Growth of Social Media on Mobiles | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Ruhani Rabin on his blog


Intro:


These days they aren’t only one of the most widely used gadgets in the world, they’re mini computers we can fit in our pockets and do just about anything on.


Here are a few statistics on social media engagement on mobile and who's doing it.


**Figures show that, on average, the highest percentage of mobile social media users are between the ages of 25 and 35, and a bigger percentage of women are online more often than men.


**Social media used on mobile phones is the only kind of entertainment that people still partake in while engaged in other forms of entertainment.


**Statistics show that more than 100 million people access Facebook through their mobile phones and the number is steadily growing, while more than a third of Twitter users access it using their phones.

MobiTV To Power 'TV Everywhere' On Mobile Phones, Tablets & Other Devices

MobiTV To Power 'TV Everywhere' On Mobile Phones, Tablets & Other Devices | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it


Mobile TV company MobiTV announced it is introducing a solution allowing cable, satellite and IPTV providers to offer so-called:


**TV Everywhere services to mobile phones, PCs, tablets and other connected devices.


**The TV Everywhere model allows existing cable, satellite, or telco TV/video customers to view programming on nontraditional TV digital outlets once authenticated.


**Leveraging MobiTV’s existing video distribution platform, TV service providers can now offer their subscribers live and on-demand programming for viewing inside and outside the home.


**By teaming with TV programmers to power their TV Everywhere initiatives in mobile, the company is also hedging against potential erosion of the subscriber base for its own mobile TV service.


**Charging $9.99 a month, MobiTV provides access to more than 40 live and on-demand channels, including content from ABC, Disney, NBC, Fox and MTV.


The company said in September it delivered a record 167 million minutes of video to mobile video devices. The bulk of that viewing was of live programming.

How ‘content curators’ are connecting consumers

This is exciting to read it has great information and definitely lives up to the promise of its title! This piece is from ZimGuardian


Here's an intro:


"The success of social networks and the move to socialise many others aspects of the web – from content and search to deals and commerce – has captured the imagination of analysts, content creators and brands.


****Those best positioned to monetise these changes, however, are developing strategies that extend beyond social networks built on who-knows-who to those built on shared interests: so-called “communities of interest


Here are a few gems that caught my attention:


Lots of great information - pay attention to the difference between social graphs vs interest graphs because once you understand this, you can use this to tweak your branding strategy and succeed beyond your wildest imagination.


"The opportunities for brand owners to capitalise on all of this are significant. But to do so effectively, they must understand more closely the nuances of socialisation", believes Francesco D’Orazio, Research Dir. of Face Agency.


**“In a world in which people feel disenfranchised when it comes to big issues beyond their control, online communities represent a kind of glue making them feel part of something bigger that’s real and authentic,” says Ed Levine, founder of Serious Eats.

The Rise of the Connected Customer and the New Era of Relevance Brian Solis

Brian Solis wrote the forward to this new book, by Becky Carroll, it's insightful and right on the money as always.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

Insight before engagement unless customer or community needs take immediate precedence.

With the emergence of social media, we are given not just a right to engage but a rite of passage to earn relevance.
Social networks are much more than Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare, YouTube, et al. These networks represent a potential much more transformative: that is, the democratization of information and the equalization of influence within new digital societies.

 

Here, everyone begins at ground zero, including you, but it is how behavior evolves that introduces us to a new future of sales, service, and business. As everyday sales and service become commodities, experiences and relationships become paramount.

 

Peers, friends, family, and experts become trusted sources to steer and filter relationships within these new landscapes. Sharing becomes social. Decisions become social. Commerce, and ultimately service, becomes social. At the heart and soul of all of this is the very essence of your business—shared experiences connected through empathy and fortified by the desire and intention to shape them in ways that help people help you.

How to Master "in the Moment" in Mobile Content Marketing

How to Master "in the Moment" in Mobile Content Marketing | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This piece was written by one of my favorite people, Scott Forshay for iMedia Connection. Great information for anyone who is using content marketing to do business can benefit from the great insights and suggestions from a man who really knows his stuff.  This is why I rescooped this article from my other topic, Mobile Marketing and Beyond.


Scott Forshay says "You can no longer market at them, you have to learn to market to context and, in turn, remain (or become) relevant".


Here's are the highlights of this article:


The variables associated with a successful mobile marketing campaign are:


**the immediacy, mapping, interaction, and collective aspects


**Each variable must be planned for to deliver a relevant experience between brand and customer, and to strengthen this mutual connection


**Today's digital-native consumer is empowered with more information and access to brands than ever before


**They are also hyper-connected to an influential social graph where tribal knowledge is constantly being shared


**The margin for error in any connection is slight, so considerations must be made for each changeable element to ensure the experience is on brand and on point


Here is one thing of the points that caught my attention:


Immediacy


**The mobile medium is in the moment. Unlike other communications vehicles that are stationary and heavily presentation-oriented, the mobile medium is:


**actionable

**time sensitive 

**on the

**always on


**Given the limited time intervals of engagement opportunity, brands must ensure that communications are:


**crisp

**call to action is clear, consise and quick to          

    participate in

The Future of Marketing 2012 and Beyond - Rethink, Reinvent, Renew [Video]

This piece and video is powerful, with great messages from thought leaders about what you need to do to stay relevant in 2012. It was written and posted by Glen Hiemstra, founder of futurist.com, speaker, blogger and much more.


Glen says:


"I don’t think there is any question that future buying activity will be driven heavily by economics, that is, who can offer the most affordable quality.


But when there is a decision point between brand options, and price is not the key driver, then consumers will increasingly ask whether the brand demonstrates that it cares about its customers."


**Facilitating such shifts in attitudes about brands are all the tools and new assumptions about marketing.


**Chief among these is the shift of power to consumers


**the Net means that customers own the brand and are the primary marketers


**The Net is a megaphone for individual customers and their connected devices are all publishing tools now.


**Probably the most interesting, and even amazing thing about the Web in the past five years has been its metamorphosis from an information-consuming medium to an information-publishing medium for the average user.


**I think we are just now beginning to grasp what this means, from consumer interactions to revolutions in the public square.


He refers to an article "The Future of Marketing 46 Experts Share Their Predictions for 2012 from Business 2 Community.

A Glimpse into The Mobile World In 60 Seconds [Infographic]

A Glimpse into The Mobile World In 60 Seconds [Infographic] | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

This article was written by Chris Velazco for Tech Crunch


The infographic from ad exchange, Mobclix in this piece aims to highlight what goes down in the mobile world in 60 seconds.



****Before you read the excerpt, I thought it was particularly interesting to post one of the comments made by a reader who saw the infograph.  He wasn't the only one that said this was an unfinished report. I think these people are missing the point here.


**This is a mere glimpse, the tip of the iceberg, to give us an idea of the magnitude of this exploding industry, it's not the be all end all report. I'm very careful what I post, I don't want to add to the noise, so look at the infographic with this in mind and imagine how it would look if you added what one of the readers said below.


One reader's comment:


Ulrich Weihler:  "Nice idea, but major things for spending mobile time are missing, surfing content, using communities, using apps, internet usage, downloading music and videos, listening to music or watching videos, sms and actually phone connecions to talk, etc.. that's why the chart looks a bit strange."


Excerpt:


"In case you were curious, in the time it took me to write out that first sentence, over 23,000 iOS apps were downloaded from Apple’s App Store.


** Mobclix used data directly from app publishers, industry sources, and a little old-fashioned arithmetic to get the 60 second stats you see below.


Of course, considering Mobclix’s background, there had to be some ad-related factoids in the mix too.


Mobile advertisers will be glad to know (if they didn’t already) that some 4,111 ads are tapped each minute, though it almost makes you wonder how many ads

were ignored in the same 60 second timeframe.

The Future of Social Media: 38 Experts Share Their Predictions For 2012 | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it

Brian Rice wrote this piece for Business 2 Community



"What is in store for 2012? With only two months remaining until the end of the year, there is no better time than now to pause and take a look towards the future."




Here are a few things that caught my attention:


Elias Roman, CEO and co-founder of Songza


First, the easy prediction: more and more of the information we consume on a daily basis (from news to product reviews to entertainment) will come via the social media channels we have opted into and, more specifically, from the information filters we have chosen to subscribe to in those channels.


****In the short term, more information will come from more sources delivered through fewer channels.


Tony Ellison CEO from Shoplet.com


****Social media can insert the missing human touch and allow mankind to tap into the full potential of the internet. Because of this, it is going to transform eCommerce as we know it.


Loren McDonald, VP of Industry Relations at Silverpop


The convergence of mobile, social, local and email, or “mocial,” is forcing marketers to change the way they interact with customers and prospects to ensure that they are where their customers and prospects are, all the time. In 2012 and beyond, savvy marketers will need to cross promote between all channels.

This piece was written by Tim Ebner, a Merrill journalism fellow at Univ. of Maryland, writing for the American Journalism Review and curated by JanLGordon covering "Content Curation, Social Media and Beyond"


Longform journalism faces a stiff challenge:


**How do you hold the attention of an audience that is clicking rather than paging through a long article?


**A new group of content curators say it’s with mobile devices and apps, which are broadening longform’s appeal and creating sit-down readers once again.



In 2009, Mark Armstrong founded a content curation site called Longreads. The site aggregates journalism content around the interests of an online community.


**Community members share traditional print stories, like those found in The Atlantic, The New Yorker and Vanity Fair, as well as articles found in online-only publications, like Atlantic Public Media's Transom.org or ESPN's Grantland.


**Each article can be shared or saved for later reading to a mobile device.


"This site is not just for New Yorkers who take the subway," he says. "This is a global audience of passionate readers."

The Future of Content Curation

The Future of Content Curation | Curation, Social Business and Beyond | Scoop.it
We are all facing huge information overload these days and content curation is now more important than ever. What is the future of it?

 

Content curation is the searching, selecting, and sharing of valuable content on a specific subject. Selection has traditionally been done by humans, and indeed, some definitions of content curation specify that it should be done by humans, but in practice it is more and more often done by machines.

 

I think automated curation is a sound idea; it is plausible the computers can curate instead of merely aggregate, although the success of its implementation remains to be seen.

 

I will attempt to categorize the various curation solutions with examples of each category, after which I will evaluate what all of this means.
